We've decided to turn our upcoming Impactathon & Celebration into a Digital Birthday Party! Special iApps is 5 this year, and it really couldn't be easier to get involved. We're making some virtual noise with our first ever Thunderclap.
We are proud to be a nonprofit social enterprise, and today we are at the splendid Sage building in Gateshead, just across the River Tyne from Newcastle, at the second annual North East Social Enterprise Festival.
Every year we hold a celebration to thank our local volunteers and the families we help. This year is going to be different! Our event is over 2 days in Newcastle, where we will be unveiling our new Teacher Manual as well as holding our first ever Impactathon.
We have entered our Special Stories and Special Words apps into an online competition. 10 apps will be shortlisted after voting closes on October 4, to attend the final in Sant Cugat, near Barcelona in Spain, on October 19.
Again this year, we will be at the National Portage Association's annual conference, on September 30th and October 1st in Northampton. We'll be hosting 2 different seminars on the Friday, and repeating both on the Saturday.
